Kid Cudi was super keyed-up to play Coachella for the first time since 2019 when he took the Sahara tent stage on Sunday (April 21). But his joy was short-lived, because during the set Cudi spontaneously hopped down off the stage in an attempt to get close to his fans, a sweet gesture that turned sour when Mr. Solo Dolo seriously injured his foot on the way down.

“Hey guys, so I broke my foot today at the show [forehead smack emoji]. just leavin the hospital,” he wrote a bit after midnight on Sunday after incurring the injury during a performance of “Memories” and getting carried off. “Never broken a bone before so this is all a bit crazy. I wanna thank u all for ur concerns and well wishes!! I love yall man. I heard yall still ragin when I was offstage. Made me smile big.”

In a video of the incident, Cudi gingerly steps over the lip of the stage before jumping down into the photo pit, immediately crumpling to the ground and grimacing as he lays down in the dirt. Cudi was added to the second weekend of the Indio, CA festival, and performed two new songs live for the first time during his foreshortened set, “MOON MAN SHIT” and “BLUE SKY,” according to setlist, as well as “Tequila Shots,” “Sad People,” “Up Up & Away,” “Superboy” and “Electrowavebaby 2.0” before the injury during a cover of David Guetta’s remix of “Memories.”

At press time the extent of the injury was unknown, but Cudder will seemingly have plenty of time to heal and rest up before the kick-off of his upcoming Insano world tour. The 43-date outing with Pusha T, EARTHGANG, Jaden Smith, Chelsea Pastel and Siena Bella is slated to launch on June 28 with a show at the Moody Center in Austin, TX.
